I am part of a global academic movement that questions and disrupts Western psychological understanding of our social worlds. I have edited three special issues on decolonial approaches in and of psychology with the Readsura Decolonial Editorial Collective, the first of which has been published in the Review of General Psychology in December 2021. The second and third issues were published in the Journal of Social Issues. 

I have also edited a special issue entitled "Towards a Social Psychology of Precarity" with Dr Clare Coultas and Dr Johanna Lukate for the British Journal of Social Psychology.

I completed my PhD in Psychology at the department of Psychological and Behavioural Sciences, London School of Economics and Political Science in 2018. I studied the social psychology of racial, and ethnic identity constructions, negotiations, and intergroup relations in multicultural societies that have race-based social policies. I explored the influence of multidimensional contexts on these constructions, drawing from the fields of history, sociology, political science, and human geography. Research for the PhD was carried out in Malaysia, Singapore, and the UK.

My other research interests include perspective taking among individuals, the socio-cultural determinants of health related behaviour as well as safety culture within public health systems.
